Emmanuel Mwashumbe’s Salary
All the true Kenyan Rhumba music fans recognize Mwashumbe since he used to host the KTN Home Rhumba show (Rasha Rasha) that aired every Saturday night from 10 to 12 PM.
He is a renowned rhumba music enthusiast and occasionally hosts Rhumba nights at various festivals and nightclub events in Nairobi.
This genre of music usually attracts the country’s mature generation, unlike other types of music niches favored by younger audiences.
Therefore, most Rhumba events are usually highly-priced in terms of entrance fees since most audiences are financially stable.
Most of the rhumba festivals’ lowest entry fee ranges from Ksh. 2000 to Ksh.5000, while VIP tickets are from Ksh.10, 000 to Ksh.15, 000.
It means that whenever Emmanuel Mwashumbe appears as the Rhumba event’s MC, he is assured of receiving a significant pay estimated to be from KSH.50, 000 to Ksh.100, 000 per show.
Due to his influence in the entertainment sector (especially Rhumba), their morning show’s popularity, and his vast experience in the radio sector since he is also a producer at Radio Maisha, he is among the well-paid presenters on the station.
Although he tries to keep this information private, we have credible information from reliable sources revealing that Mwashumbe receives an estimated gross salary of Ksh.600, 000.
